Choosing a therapist is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. So here are two thoughts on what to consider when selecting one: 1 • Do a little research: Set up a time to talk with at least two therapists. You may get a good feeling from the first one, but it’s always helpful to get another point of view. But in the end, go with your gut! 2 • The fee and time limit on the initial call: I DO NOT charge a fee nor is there a time limit for the call. It’s determined by you getting the information you need, sharing some of your story, discussing the fee; and if you feel comfortable, setting up an session. Good luck!

* VOTED TOP 3 MARRIAGE COUNSELORS * "With Isabell’s help, I experienced profound healing and growth beyond my wildest imagination. In every session, I received absolute presence and compassion—no note taking, no distractions, no judgment, pure being in the Now. I sought out her help when I was going through an awfully painful breakup. What would have taken traditional therapists several years, Isabell helped me dissolve in just 10 weeks. What an amazingly liberating experience. I came out of this counseling as a strong, independent woman bursting with a love for life." - Female Client, 43

I believe that we all have the resources within us to heal, and yet sometimes we need a little help. The right connection between a therapist/client can help start that healing. Maybe your teenager is sullen and isolated. Maybe you are in love and scared to be truly seen by another. Maybe there’s an angry side of you that your family doesn’t understand and a vulnerable side that is too scary to feel. Together we can work on acceptance, healthy coping skills, and letting go of bad habits. Without judgment, we will build an understanding of who you are as a person so as to realize your strengths and fortify them.

Stepfamily life is challenging. You may very well be wondering how you're going to do this. It looks like it "should" be easier than it is and that you "should" be able to figure this out. Your loved one cannot understand why you struggle. But I do. I've been there and it is why I help couples dealing with stepfamily life. You are going through challenges that simply do not occur in a first family. Learning about these dynamics and working with them creates more remarriage success. I can help you find success in your stepfamily.
